"...provide[s] design practitioners with tools and information that transcend accessibility codes and make universal concepts a part of all good design." - Deane Evans, VP, Research, AIA.

"One of, if not the most up-to-date and comprehensive publications available anywhere." - John Slamen, President, Universal Designers and Consultants.

"As our nation struggles with changing lifestyles and the growing demand for aging in place, this book demonstrates ways to continue residential utility and accessiblity to enhance the home environment. A positive addition to the library of any builder or designer..." - Ron Burton, director, Energy and Home Environment Department, national Association of Home Builders.

From Library Journal:

The principles of universal design accommodate not only the disabled but also people of varying sizes, shapes, abilities, and ages (traditional designs are based on able-bodied, nonelderly adults who make up less than 15 percent of the population). Peterson, a certified designer, discusses how kitchens and bathrooms can be built with these principles in mind. Numerous illustrations show how floor plans, storage, fixtures, and appliances can be configured to allow their use by anyone. A must for every library that can afford it.
